Word Filled Wednesday–Love Never Fails

WFWlogo

In the homeschool Bible curriculum my son is using, he (we) are memorizing I Corinthians 13.  Every morning, we cuddle together on the couch and read this passage together:  As we read out loud this characteristics of love again and again, I seek to grasp in my mind and heart and yearn to express this love that is so pure, so good and so selfless. 

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.                   I Corinthians 13:4-7

February is a perfect month to meditate on “LOVE”.  The more of God’s Word that goes into our hearts, the more of Him that is expressed through our words, actions and attitudes.  Although it seems daily I struggle to be patient, kind and practice the ‘does not's of love, I have a hope and belief that His love is continuing to grow in me and through me….and His love never fails.

  1. yes, it's fantastic to look at love! That's great about your son memorizing it, I should do that with my kids for a verse to learn! We've been doing shorter ones, but that would work well for Valentines! thanks for the great idea!

  7. Definitely something that each of our children should learn.

    If you don't mind, what Bible curriculum are you using? :)

  9. I was reminded by those verses of a poem I once wrote but do not appear to have it in my file.
    The one you love belongs to Christ
    And stands complete in Him
    Here is your hope and here your Joy
    When life if cold and grim......etc.

    I must find it and put it in the file.....I think the last line is not quite accurate. But it was good to reflect on God's love giving character to those we love.
